|Calculated MW||15164 Da|
|Positive Control||Recombinant human FABP-5|
|Application & Usage||Western Blot analysis (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. Recombinant human FABP-5 can be used as a positive control.|
|Other Names||Epidermal-type fatty acid-binding protein, E-FABP, Fatty acid-binding protein 5, Psoriasis-associated fatty acid-binding protein homolog|
|Formulation||100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-human FABP5 polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, 5mM EDTA and 0.01% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||FABP5 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||High specificity for fatty acids. Highest affinity for C18 chain length. Decreasing the chain length or introducing double bonds reduces the affinity. May be involved in keratinocyte differentiation.|
|Tissue Location||Keratinocytes; highly expressed in psoriatic skin|
